As a woman, I understand that I am only half of a person. As a gay woman, I am only 1/3 of a person. Therefore any successes I achieve are only somewhat admirable.
Today, Women’s Equality Day, let’s reflect on some of the things we lowly women have done throughout history...
We’ve worn things better than other women.
We’ve been married to male athletes who are married to Olympic medalists.
We’ve gone to the coffee shop after divorcing our husbands.
We still can look good in bikinis after age 5.
We’ve also done some even more amazing things, like…
We’ve kept the country running during war and even built the weaponry used in said wars.
We dominate in athletics and break world records.
We invent things like the car heater, the medical syringe, Wi-Fi, and BEER.
We direct some of Hollywood’s best films.
We rule nations.
Oh, and some of us are Beyonce.
Women slay. Don’t ever forget it.
